Fox will hit The Floor again — twice — in the 2024-25 season.

The network has renewed its Rob Lowe-hosted game show for two more cycles, both of which are slated to air next season. Addtionally, Fox and Lowe — who’s also a producer of The Floor — have signed a first-look deal to develop unscripted projects.

The renewal comes just ahead of Fox’s upfront presentation to advertisers Monday, but it’s not a big surprise: The Floor was quietly one of the best-performing shows on the network this season. It averaged 3.47 million viewers over seven days of linear viewing, according to Nielsen ratings, and grew to 5.5 million viewers with streaming and other digital platforms included.

“Fans loved the first season of The Floor so much that we’ve ordered two more seasons of this breakthrough game show, with plans already underway to make our epic battle of the brains even bigger and bolder,” said Michael Thorn, Fox network president. “It’s also been a massive win to have a huge star like Rob Lowe as our host, and both our viewers and competitors can’t wait to see him back in action.”

Fox viewers will see a lot of Lowe on the air in 2024-25, as his scripted drama 911: Lone Star is also slated to return in the fall after taking the 2023-24 season off.

As for the first-look deal, Lowe and Fox will jointly develop unscripted projects for the network. Any series that result from the deal will be produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment, the network’s in-house unscripted studio.

“I couldn’t be happier with The Floor phenomenon and the opportunity to create more unscripted projects with my partners at Fox,” said Lowe.

Talpa owns The Floor format and produces the Fox show with Eureka Productions and BiggerStage. John de Mol, Mark van Achterberg, Chris Culvenor, Paul Franklin, Wes Dening, Sean O’Riordan, Shane Byrneserve and showrunner Anthony Carbone are the executive producers, and Lowe produces.
